The 26-year-old “Shape Of You” singer said he might have had a little too much to drink while the friends were having fun in Japan.
“We’d been out to a dive bar,” he told The Guardian. “He just drank water and I got hammered.”
“Then we went to a golf course, and he lays on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth,” he went on. “I was like, ‘F–k, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung.”
Ouch. “You know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap?” Ed added. “But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening? I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like, I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club.”
In case you didn’t know, Ed wrote “Love Yourself” and “Cold Water” for Justin.
